what are you cooking for cinco de mayo?

The Cantina Black Bean Burger
inspired by Big Daddy's Burger Bar in Charlotte, NC.

You will need:

olive oil spray for coating skillet, 2 (15oz) cans of black beans drained, 2 cups dry bread crumbs, 2 cans Mexican corn (canned corn with peppers) drained, 3 large eggs, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, buns or your choice.

Mix all ingredients (except buns, of course) together, form into patties, and pan fry over medium heat until cooked through.

Serve on buns, and (this is the UNIQUE part)

top with:

Avocado, mild green chiles drained from a can, monterey jack cheese, and chipotle ranch dressing.

To make the

Chipotle Ranch Dressing:

Mix together 1 cup fat free sour cream, 2 T light mayo, 1 package dry Ranch dressing mix, 1-3 T pureed Chipotle pepper or Chipotle Chiles in Adobo Sauce (depending on your personal taste).
(p.s. I borrowed the photo here.)

    Happy Cinco to you too~! : )
